The Recipe How-To

“A toast to love! This sweet and zesty punch is perfect for celebrating the happy couple.”

Once you’ve gathered all the necessary ingredients, start by mixing 1 cup of fresh lemon juice with 1/2 cup of sugar in a large pitcher, stirring until the sugar dissolves completely.

Next, add 1 cup of cranberry juice, 2 cups of pomegranate juice, and 2 cups of orange juice to the pitcher. If using frozen concentrate for any of these juices, be sure to thaw it first.

Assemble the punch by slowly pouring in two bottles (750 ml each) of chilled champagne or sparkling wine into the pitcher. If possible, use brut champagne for a drier taste.

For added fizz and sweetness, pour in 2 cups of ginger ale or club soda to the mix. Stir gently to combine all ingredients.

Add some fruit garnish of your choice (such as sliced strawberries, sliced lemons or limes) and serve over ice in a punch bowl or individual glasses.

Pro tip: If you’re looking for a non-alcoholic version or hosting a baby shower, Christmas party, or any celebration for non-drinkers, this punch can simply be made without alcohol by swapping champagne with sparkling rosé or using plain seltzer water instead of ginger ale.

To make-ahead and store overnight (or even longer), prepare the punch up to step four ahead of time but hold off on adding champagne and ginger ale until right before guests arrive. Keep chilled in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Substitutions and Variations

“With a splash of citrus and a dash of grenadine, this punch is a sweet and tangy delight.”

The beauty of this Champagne Punch Recipe is that you can make a ton of substitutions and variations, depending on your preferences or the occasion. For instance, if you prefer a less sweet punch recipe, you can use less sugar or omit it entirely. Conversely, if you have a sweet tooth, feel free to add more sugar to the mix.

You can also experiment with different fruit juices based on what’s available or what’s in season. While this recipe calls for cranberry juice and pomegranate juice, you can swap them out for other options like pineapple juice, orange juice or lemonade.

For those who don’t want any alcohol in their punch, consider swapping out the champagne sparkling wine for ginger ale, club soda or lemon-lime soda. You may also opt for a non-alcoholic recipe by replacing champagne with Pink Grapefruit Sparkling Water or Sparkling Cider.

If you’re feeling adventurous, try adding some fresh fruit to your champagne punch recipe like strawberries or raspberries. Or to add an extra pop of color to your punch bowl, freeze some grapes and use them as ice cubes.

Another variation of this recipe worth trying is Blue Champagne Punch Recipe which uses blue raspberry Kool-Aid as one of its ingredients. This beautiful blue-hued punch not only has a fun twist taste but it also looks great on any table and perfect addition for New Year’s Eve celebrations.

Remember that experimenting with different substitutions and variations is part of the fun when making Champagne Punch Recipe! Don’t be afraid to mix things up and create your signature cocktails for parties and special occasions.

Serving and Pairing

“Cheers to the newlyweds! This festive punch is as beautiful as it is delicious.”

When it comes to serving and pairing this delicious wedding champagne punch recipe, there are a few things to keep in mind. Firstly, it’s important to serve this recipe chilled, so keep your champagne or sparkling wine on ice until it’s ready to be served. You can also chill your ginger ale and juices in advance, which will help to keep the punch cold once everything is mixed together.

As for pairing, this champagne punch recipe pairs beautifully with a variety of dishes. For a light and refreshing option, consider serving it alongside a fruit salad or vegetable platter. The sweetness of the punch complements the fresh flavors of the fruits and veggies perfectly.

If you’re looking for something a bit more substantial, try pairing this punch with small bites such as cheese and crackers, bruschetta or even mini quiches. The creamy, savory flavors of these dishes provide a nice contrast to the sweetness of the punch.

For those who prefer something a bit heartier, this punch pairs equally well with main dishes such as roasted chicken or fish. The light and crisp flavors of the champagne complement the richness of a good protein dish nicely.

Overall, this recipe will make a great addition to any celebration or gathering. Whether you’re hosting a bridal shower, baby shower or New Year’s Eve party, this easy-to-make and delicious champagne punch is sure to be a crowd-pleaser!

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

“Sip, sip, hooray! This easy-to-make punch is the perfect addition to any wedding reception.”

The Wedding Champagne Punch Recipe can be made up to 24 hours ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator until ready to serve. It is important to keep the champagne chilled until you are ready to serve, so it remains fresh and bubbly!

If you have leftovers, a great tip is to freeze the punch into ice cubes for a fun twist on any signature cocktail or non-alcoholic drinks. This is perfect if you have a bottle of champagne open as it will lose its carbonation when stored in the fridge. Simply take out the champagne punch ice cubes when you are ready to create another delicious concoction!

Another tip for storing leftover punch is to keep it in an airtight container in your fridge. This will stop any air from coming into contact with the punch and impeding its flavour or ruining its fizz.

If you want to reheat the punch, we recommend doing so gently over low heat on your stove-top or using a crockpot. Make sure not to boil the punch, as that can cook off any alcohol present and affect the taste of your delicious wedding champagne punch.

With these tips, you can easily make-ahead and store this amazing Champagne Punch Recipe for your next party or special occasion without any hassle!

As we come to the end of this recipe article, I know that a few doubts might still be lurking in your mind. So, in this section, I’ll address some frequently asked questions that you might have regarding this wedding champagne punch recipe.

How long does Champagne last in punch?

The longevity of champagne punch is quite impressive as it maintains its fizziness throughout the entire duration of a gathering. If by chance, there happens to be any surplus punch left, it can be preserved by freezing it for about half a year. Though while frozen, it may lose some of its bubbly texture, you can easily revive it by adding half a bottle of champagne.

How do you keep champagne punch cold?

Proper temperature is essential to preserving the quality of opened Champagne. When storing between servings, it is advisable to chill it in the fridge or an ice bucket as cold temperatures can slow down the release of CO2 bubbles.

What liquor goes in Champagne?

As a sommelier, I have encountered various types of spirits during my career. One of the most sought-after is the clear, smooth vodka, which blends well with Champagne cocktails resulting in a wide range of popular options like Blue Champagne, Aqua Marina, and Liberty Blue Champagne. Even James Bond has a cocktail named after him that incorporates this beloved spirit.
Cognac, another premium beverage, has a distinctive flavor due to its aging process in French oak barrels. While brandy, often used as a digestive aid or after-dinner drink, is a type of distilled wine that can originate from different grape varieties or types of fruit. Gin, on the other hand, is a flavorful spirit infused with botanicals and juniper berries. Lastly, rum, made from sugarcane and molasses, stands out with its dark, rich flavor profile that blends well with a variety of cocktails.

How to make a champagne cocktail in Ina Garten?

For a delicious Champagne cocktail, begin by placing a sugar cube into each flute. Next, add a tablespoon of brandy over each sugar cube. Finally, top off each flute with chilled Champagne. To enhance the flavor, take an orange zest and rub it around the rim of the flute. Finally, add a piece of zest into each cocktail. Enjoy immediately!
